31st Main: Chicken Rendang (Rendang Ayam) – Rendang Pedas Ayam [71] [Score: 8.3]
Author: Nyonya Cooking [Grace Teo]

Photo shows Chicken Rendang served with rice and hard-boiled egg.

Had discussed with Mira on preparing kerisik. She had strongly suggested using frozen grated coconut (as in MasterChef recipe). Kitchen Guardian, however, got to know what I’m up to, i.e. trying to make kerisik from scratch. Guardian said there’s no need because there are 3 ready-made packets of kerisik (each 35g) in the pantry, which was bought in Malaysia 4 years ago! Each packet cost 80 Malaysian cents.  Guardian insisted that I use the packet kerisik, and so I did. 

Using MasterChef recipe, happy to note that the Chicken Rendang was almost cooked to perfection, but the kerisik smells! Gotten a score of 8.3. Finally, the Guardian agreed to dump the rest of the kerisik packs in the bin. I’m happy :). The next time round I’ll prepare kerisik as advice by MasterChef and Mira.

  • Helena Cheah:

    Wow. You are great. I just learnt to make chicken rendang weeks ago. You are a fast learner! Keep it up.

  • Helena Cheah:

    The kerisik is not hard to make. Try urs soon.

  • Robin:

    Helena, I know. I was ready with the frozen grated coconut to make the kerisik, but the Guardian of the Kitchen insisted me to use the expired ready-made packet kerisik.

  • Robin:

    I’m glad that was over. There will be many, many more dishes with kerisik and this time round I’m going to prepare it from scratch :).

  • Helena Cheah:

    ;)
